I just thought I’d tell you about an incident that happened after Nick colonoscopy. When we left the center they told him, ‘Consider yourself legally drunk for the rest of the day. No driving, no operating heavy equipment, don’t sign legal papers and don’t make important decisions.’ I drove us home and we both took a nap.
Later that afternoon Nick had put on his ‘puttering around the yard’ clothes and headed out. I glanced up from my reading and smiled at him as he started out the door. I knew there was no chance of him staying inside all day. “Nothing strenuous,” I told him.
“I know,” he told me. “I’m just blowing out the rest of the gutters.” It took just a second for that to register. Blowing out the gutters, you mean like climbing on the roof with the leaf blower and walking around blowing out the leaves?”
“Oh no you are not!” I yelled.
Nick just grinned back at me and said, “Just wanted to make sure you were listening.”
This man is going to worry me to death one of these days.
